Matt Holmberg named women's hockey head coach


Matt Holmberg, an assistant coach with the Queen’s women’s hockey program since 2006, has been appointed the new head coach for the 2009-10 season.
Holmberg takes the reins from Harold Parsons who stepped down last week. Parsons will hold the title of mentor coach for the 2009-10 season to ensure a smooth transition in leadership.  Holmberg is a former triple-A minor hockey player with brief experience in the junior ‘A’ tier II level. He currently holds his NCCP Hockey Development Coaching Certificate and has coached a variety of women’s sports in Pembrooke, Ontario.
Holmberg is no stranger to leading the team in competition, having served as interim head coach for the Gaels twice during the 2008-09 season and winning both games. Assistant coach Kim Pearce will continue with the team in an expanded capacity under Holmberg’s tutelage. Pierce, a former Princeton Tiger in the NCAA, is a past Ivy League Player of the Year and captured Ivy League Rookie of the Year honours as a freshman.
